“Margaritas were great, food was better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

We were staying close by Shelton, went into town and found few restaurant choices so we pulled into the strip center and stumbled into El Sarape. The restaurant is typical Mexican decorating but what is unusual it that it is very narrow but very long. When you go, you will see what I mean.

The staff was very pleasant and glad to see us. We ordered two of the margaritas which were served in oversized glasses and they were strong.

We thought the main courses were very good, of course the margaritas may have helped that.

I recommend El Sarape and would stop there again.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2008

Of the two El Sarape Restaurants in Shelton, the uptown store on Olympic Highway is where we go. The restaurant is large enough that rarely is there a wait to get a table.
The servers are quick with the chips and salsa, beverage and food order and arrival of meals. Can say that we have never had a bad meal here.
Shelton is fortunate to have a restaurant of this caliber for a small town, one that consistently produces a great product, quick and friendly service all at an affordable price.

“average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2007

Your average americanized mexican food nothing special, not even really worth a review it is so run-of-the-mill. It is a pity being so close to the sea that their seafood dishes can't even pull it out of the norm. If you are craving the americanized version of mexican food this will cure your craving for your simple palate.
